Having played in light blue for most of the last decade, it will be strange to see David Silva out of the light blue of Manchester City. Heavily linked with a move back to Valencia CF as well as moves to America and China, another destination has come up for Silva: S.S. Lazio of Italy. The Roman giants put in a great title challenge this year, but fell short at the end. Still, they are UEFA Champions League qualifiers and could offer Silva top level competition, a potential title challenge, and the chance to live in an amazing city.
For Lazio, though, the move would likely come at a cost of a key player being sold. While the likes of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Luis Alberto are publicly not on the market, it’s likely that they will be subject to bids. With both player having become key players at Lazio, we could see one or the other sold to make space for Silva – with the Serbian the most likely transfer target.
Having become an essential part of the Lazio side that has become one of the true thorns in the side of Juventus, there would be a palpable excitement to such a signing. Lazio are believed to be keen on the player, with Silva’s father, Fernando, admitting his son would be interested in trying out the Italian game.
Indeed, his father even said that Silva believes he could play in Serie A until he’s 40.
